DOJ finally paying
dead prosecutor
84 others to get retirement differentials, too

The family of a retired government prosecutor in Negros Occidental, who had pleaded with the Department of Justice for the release of his retirement pay so he could have a heart bypass operation before he passed away, will finally be paid.

Marcelo B. del Pilar, 66, who retired as OIC city prosecutor of Cadiz City in Negros on July 15, 2011, succumbed to a heart attack on April 4 without getting what was due him, and what he needed to save his life, his wife, Teresa, said.

The DOJ, on its website, yesterday announced that 85 DOJ prosecutors, including del Pilar, who retired since 2010 to 2012 can now claim their retirement gratuity differential.moremoremore

The motion for reconsideration was filed by Albert and Philip Arles, with their sister, Maria Estelita Arles, acting as counsel.

‘Bacoleño OFWs
okay in Taiwan’


Overseas Filipino Workers from Bacolod in Taiwan are safe despite several reported assaults by Tawainese on OFWs there, City Public Employment Services Office head, Moises de la Cruz, said yesterday.

De la Cruz said he talked with one of the OFWs from Bacolod, who is now in Kaohciung City over the phone Saturday and was told that most employers are warning their Filipino workers not go out, especially at night.

He said PESO has already advised the Bacoleños working in Taiwan to contact them immediately if they are in trouble so they can take action.moremoremore
